The company that I work for went public last week. I purchased shares in an employee offering. I have a handful of shares of the company, but much to my dismay, we are traded on the pink sheets. I searched through a thread from a couple of years ago in regards to pink sheet quotes/executions, but what I was wondering was has anything really changed? I signed up for L2 quotes for the pinks via stockwatch, but never see anything inside the spread being quoted, even though my orders that I put through are inside the spread. For example, bid-ask is 2-3 . I put in an order to buy at $2.50, but the current bid doesn't update at any point throughout the day. From the previous thread I read on the subject, it is my understanding that bids can even cross asks without resulting in a fill. How is this possible? For what its worth, my broker is Scottrade. (I use others but used Scottrade because they had the quickest turnaround time on stock deposit). Also, Scottrade will not let me trade the pinks after hours. Is this the case with all brokerages? Any insight would be appreciated, even if it is directing me to read a certain book ; i'm at a loss here and feel like i'm flying without radar, especially on such a thinly traded stock.
